COLUMBUS, Ohio (WCMH) — A man accused of shooting a woman while she drove on I-71 over the weekend, made his first court appearance, Monday.
Jordan Slocum, 30, was issued a $500,000 bond in a Franklin County courtroom on a felonious assault charge.
According to the Columbus Division of Police, at about 3:25 a.m., Saturday, officers responded to I-71 southbound, north of E. North Broadway on the report of a crash.
When officers arrived on the scene, they found a woman suffering from an apparent gunshot wound to the head.
